About

After two years of only seeing Santa through the Santa Zoomer, come along and meet him in person on the balcony at Chesterfield Market Hall. The magic of Christmas is back!

You can tell Santa what you would like for Christmas, and he’ll give you a present to go under your tree for opening on Christmas Day. Make sure the person bringing you doesn’t forget their phone so they can take a photo.

We want everyone to enjoy a visit with Santa so there are several relaxed sessions for children with learning disabilities or sensory and communication disorders. We’ll turn off the flashing lights, increase the background lighting and allow a little longer to meet with Santa.

Tickets are on sale now!

Booking is essential for this event and you can book online using the Book Now button at the top of the page. Alternatively, contact the Visitor Information Centre or call in and see us in Rykneld Square (just across from the Crooked Spire).
